This is the adorable moment a Yorkshire Terrier refuses to leave a pet store so it can stay with new parrot friend.

Cheeky Chloe was so enraptured by a green cheeked conure that she stood on her hind legs peering into the case at the Petco store in Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA, on June 30.

As owner Jamie Robinson tries to pull his two-year-old pup away, she continues to stare at the bird before plonking her bum on the floor.

While gently pulling the leash to move his besotted pet, Chloe spreads her paws on the ground to cling on, even walking in the opposite direction.

Jamie said: “We thought it was so adorable and really didn’t want to make Chloe leave.

“Other people in the pet store were watching and laughing along with us which was nice.

“She has never reacted like this before but made a beeline straight for this specific bird.

“We considered buying the conure for her but it cost $450 which was crazy.

“In the end Chloe carried on like this for 20 minutes and the only way we could get her to leave was by picking her up and walking out.”
